Naomi Campbell was arrested Thursday for investigation of assaulting a police officer at London's Heathrow Airport, a source confirmed.

According to Metropolitan Police, officers were "alerted to a disturbance" at 5:11 p.m. at the newly opened Terminal 5, where travelers' frustrations have flared due to baggage delays since opening last week.

"Subsequently, a 37-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer," a police spokesperson says. "She was taken to Heathrow Police Station where she currently remains in custody."

Police didn't identify the woman. But a source confirms it was the 37-year-old Campbell, arrested after she boarded a plane.

"Police were called to remove a passenger from a British Airways flight this afternoon," a British airport authority spokesperson says.

The passenger was Campbell, awaiting the British Airways flight to Los Angeles, a source tells Reuters.

This is the latest alleged scuffle involving Campbell.

She was ordered to attend anger management classes and complete five days of community service last year working in a New York sanitation garage after she allegedly threw a cell phone at her housekeeper.
